Open Apron Nesting Tables #3: Assembly and Finishing Up

1 day ago by shipwright | 12 comments »

I can heave a sigh of relief now. The client just came and picked up the tables this afternoon and she loved them. Like all of us, I am never really completely satisfied and always see flaws but she was thrilled and we’re talking about her next idea now. Back to the build. There’s nothing really earth shattering about how this was done but maybe some details are interesting enough for a few photos. I’ll just post the photos with a few comments and answer any questions the...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #12: Sides Marquetry incrustation

1 day ago by Patricelejeune | 11 comments »

I have been back full time on our boxes for over a week now so I have some progress to report. I have been selecting veneer out of our veneer cellar for the ebony background. From the experience of the previous series I paperbacked the ebony as it is a very brittle wood. Better be safe than sorry Then built the packs in 4 layers without forgetting the grease paper, one of my specialty in the mistake department. Teaching marquetry has been a great help as by reminding the stud...

Rockwell 37-600 jointer

2 days ago by jlabos | 0 comments »

I picked up a Rockwell 37-600 jointer on craigslist for $50 not too long ago and I never got around to adding it to the blog so here it is…This is what i got from the buyer. He was even nice enough to deliver it to me. When I got it a checked for flatness and listened to the motor and cutter bearings. All sounded good enough. I was thinking about sanding and painting for a complete restore. After cleaning the rust off the fence and tables and doing some wet sanding I was plea...

Current Project #3: 1st Real Picture Frame

2 days ago by Dave Rutan | 5 comments »

Another house project. We’ve wanted to frame a large piece of my daughter’s artwork. The cost of frames is a bit higher than me making one out of an old drawer front found on the curb. I’ll be doing the matting as well—a new skill to be acquired!

FANTASY MARQUETRY #7: Another Marquetry Process

2 days ago by stefang | 9 comments »

I didn’t get much done today on my wizard marquetry, but what I did do maybe brings up an interesting topic, sand shading. A disclaimer here as I have only tried sand shading once before and it didn’t turn out very well, but it is a subject worth discussing because it also has a lot to do with how the marquetry is cut and that is my main point here. As you can see from the photo below the wizards hand has been cut out around each finger and a little less obvious also on the han...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #25: Main Project on hold!

2 days ago by PhilBello | 3 comments »

It appears that our beloved President Santos has given us duff information, a couple of months ago, we were warned to expect El Niño, nine months of dry arrid weather, the last week has seen the return of the rainy season, and that is not just the odd shower, so I think our second winter of the year has arrived, which is not what I need at the moment. Unless the weather breaks and we have a decent spell, I am going to have to put the kiosko roof replacement on hold, I haven’t got suf...

In Praise of Cigar Boxes

2 days ago by handsawgeek | 3 comments »

“I’m a smoker only when I’m on fire…” -Anonymous I have an affinity for cigar boxes. Not only are they intrinsically attractive, but they provide an excellent method of organizing and storing hardware, small parts, accessories, and tools in the workshop. The nicer ones – those made of finished wood complete with hinges and hasps, are reserved for sets of small tools. Most importantly, they are in compliance with the handsawgeek’s stringent ‘Hand Tool Only / No Plastics Zone’ ...

2 days ago by Scott | 2 comments »

For my first blog entry, I will pick up with a new wood sign project I just started. This is a custom wooden sign for a vacation home in the mountains of UT. The sign will have a banner and an area for logo / art. My process is one part machining and a second part hand carving. Its an interesting fusion. The name of the home is called “snowfall castle”. Thanks for looking, Scott. Lazy River Studio.
